Use the node-set extension function for your processor - or if it
supports exslt common then use that for the extra portability.

Other than that you could use function-available and a choose-when to
choose the correct node-set extension for the main big players, but
that's a bit tiresome.

The other way is to use document('') to return the stylesheet itself eg:

<xsl:variable name="RTF">
  some constructed nodes


 <xsl:apply-templates select="document('')//xsl:variable[@name = RTF]"/>
